to the economy specifically with governing and health care. but we'll see if the general nature of those areas allows libya to come up, which we know the romney folks want to do. debates are as much about style as substance and this is a reality show where obama and romney will meet in the first time in nearly five years before their biggest audience of the campaign. the first 2008 presidential debate between the president and john mccain got seven times the audience of the highest rated 2012 republican primary debate. think about that. seven times. past debates show romney and obama have to worry about cut away shots that are less than flattering. in the past both candidates have come across as irritable, patronizing or disengaged. this was chris christie's advice to the candidates yesterday. >> what you do is go out and be yourself. and people either like it or don't. if they don't, they are going to vote for somebody else. not a tragedy. no one dies. >> finally speaking of debates, there was a barn burner last night in massachusetts where scott brown and democratic challenger el

government accountable and why the united states will do what we must to prevent iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. he uses the word -- the word containment. that's a big declaration there for what it's worth. the remarks are directed not just at an international audience but a domestic one. mitt romney who was accusing the president of damaging ties with israel and not being tough enough on iran, yesterday attacked the president's answer to a "60 minutes" question about whether the recent middle east uprising gave him any doubts about support of governments that emerged from the arab spring. here is what the president said. >> i think it was absolutely the right thing for us to do to align ourselves with democracy. universal rights and a notion people have to be able to participate in their own governance. but i was pretty certain and continue to be pretty certain that there are going to be bumps in the road. >> romney seized on that phrase "bumps in the road." first in a series of network interviews. a media blitz f you will. >> we have just had an ambassador assassinated. egypt e

exhibit number one of the president's political philosophy. and that is that government knows better than people how to run their lives. >> every time i look at romney and health care i think of jack nicholson and "a few good men." health care in massachusetts was a signature accomplishment and it seems to kill him he can't simply say you're right i signed the bill into law and like the mandate in this state. he can't campaign on health care and there's a takeback like you saw now. >> president obama is coming across aggressive on the campaign trail. the president argued republicans wanted to give the wealthiest americans people like me and mr. romney a tax cut. now the president has changed that language. he leads himseves himself out o. >> my opponent thinks it's fair that someone who makes 20 million a year like he does pays less than an autoworker who makes 50,000 a year but i disagree. i don't think that's fair. >> meanwhile, paul ryan debuted a power point presentation over the weekend in florida and has now been using charts on the trail since to hammer the president on
